Contract worker’s compensation insurance or workman’s comp insurance provides coverage for damages (loss of limbs, emphysema, and more) inflicted at the workplace. It also covers the medical and rehab bills for workers to recuperate and return to work, liabilities, lost wages, and potential lawsuits.
Worker’s compensation rules vary per state—some states allow employers to self-insure, and others set a minimal amount of employees for coverage. Independent contractors need to get workers comp insurance for themselves, but a business owner may have to get one for them if they do not comply.
